What Have You Watched Recently?

Hancock. I thought it was okay but I had to shake my head at these people calling Hancock names when they know he can throw a whale and partially wreck the city just by flying drunk.

 

And the prison scene made me wince a lot

Re: What Have You Watched Recently?

 

Just finished watching the anime Tokko. Interesting story but it doesn't really have a conclusion, it just ends.

 

Now I am re-watching Silent Mobius (the TV series), its been a few years and I am getting ready to set-up an Urban Fantasy game in a similar vein. I'll probably steal a lot from Shawdow Angelus as well (Thanks Susano).

Tokyo Gore Police.

 

I really wanted to like this. Genetic engineering as body mod fettishism, "Engineers" going mad and being taken down by a privatized police force, whose top hunter is a school-girl age orphan raised by the department. Turned out to be torture porn, absolutely unwatchable. Shame, as I still think the concept would have made for a good story.

 

Mail

 

Japanese TV series adapted from a Manga. A modern psychic detective recieves letters from the dead, then solves the mysteries involved in their deaths, inevitably confronting various ghosts and demons in the process. Good concept, OK execution if you're not put off by the pacing or ultra-cheap CGI. Would have liked it more if I had seen it first 30 years ago.

Maybe they were stupid and had a death wish?

 

Or maybe they were working on the well-known idea that superheroes don't kill civilians, no matter how annoying they are? I can't imagine anything other explanation for why J. Jonah Jameson is still breathing...

Well the bank robber did think he had the upper hand. I have a switch that will blow up all these hostages. What are you going to do, Hancock?

 

Cut your hand off, dummy.

Death Trance -- A really, really weird Japanese film that seems to be a mix of samurai/horror/[dark] comedy/post-apocalyptic action. I can't say it made 100% sense, but it sure was fun to watch.

Sounds interesting. On the netflix que it goes.

 

Having some trouble finding new characters for my live action Asian supers game. At this point, I'm going with characters in films I already own.

It's from some of the Versus guys, if that helps.

Yup, they do fun flicks. Did you get a chance to watch the Versus making of feature? Amazing what you can do on a near zero budget these days.

 

Didn't really like the extended cut of Versus as much as the original cut, probably because the whole "Heroes inevitably become villains" thing annoys me. It's a faux sophisticated idea, usually delivered by disapointed idealists and genuine ******** trying to justify their actions.

Cinematic Titanic's latest release, Blood of the Vampires.

 

Philipino Mexican Vampire Film. This one was actually not that bad a C movie to start with, the kind of thing you might watch with friends, or by yourself at 2:00 am. This makes it a prime MST3k. Good riffs, not a bad party dvd.

 

One problem: No Santo riffs, in a film that was just crying out for El Santo.

1941 -- A comedic look at the paranoia California suffered after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

 

You know, I've heard of this film over and over as Spielberg's great flop, but I'd never before heard what it was about?
